Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Crimora Lake overlook, walked north a little ways to the AT crossing, then took the AT south to the summit area -- a very straightforward walk. The exact summit appears to be a small bump just west of the trail, but the top is pretty flat. It's also covered by a laurel thicket, though not as thick as these can be at times. An easy trip that I enjoyed on a day that the park was not charging an admission fee due to coronavirus precautions.
